I can't imagine an existence without music. 
I grew up in a household that always had music playing- on the radio or record player.  

At 13, I discovered the guitar -along with all of the other Beatle and Stones lovers of the world-and everything changed. The guitar has been my companion in coffee shops, rock bands, through the highs and lows of life and now to my solo career. 

The early musical influences of my upbringing have provided me with an appreciation for a very wide range of music. That is why today I perform jazz flavored classics, blues and covers of top 40 songs plus my originals. 

Here are a couple of testimonials:

 “ Rick has done a great job of bringing folks to our restaurant. His varied playlist and laid back approach to entertaining have been a good experience  for our guests.” Steve B.

"Rick Matillo is a great entertainer. He brings energy to any room. He is a professional musician wth an awesome voice." Ron Hopwood, Hopwood Cellars Winery, Zionsville, Indiana

"Rick performed for 3 fun hours at our Harvest Hawg Waller Festival and we couldn't have been happier with him!  He was perfect for the event and we received comment after comment about how much everyone enjoyed Rick and his music.  His comfortable, easy stylings offer something for everyone and are highlighted by his charisma, talent and love of music.  Many thanks to Rick for making our event a true success!"   Lisa K.

Clic“Rick is everything you could ask of an entertainer- professional, personable, on-time, and darn good! We receive such great feedback from guests every time we  have Rick play in our lounge. Recently he played in our dining room for a private party of about 60 people. Our guests raved about the perfect atmosphere he created with his music!” k here to add text.
"Rick plays at our wine bar on a regular basis and he always draws a crowd!  His personality is fun and lively, and he likes to make sure everyone is having a great time.  Unlike most musicians, he never takes a break and plays straight through.  We can always expect a busy night when Rick is here - and I have been told by multiple customers, "When Rick is back, I will be back!" Evan S.

"Thanks for playing tonight. You were awesome!" Angela - City Park Grill Petoskey
